Availon North America Launches New Web Site


Availon, Inc., a premier provider of services and parts to the wind power industry in North America, is proud to announce the launch of its new, informative, easy-to-navigate, customer-focused Web site. The site’s introduction follows the November 2010 name change of SSB Service, an international independent full-service provider of parts, upgrades, services, inspections, maintenance, and monitoring for the wind energy sector. Availon North America began operations from its Grimes, Iowa, headquarters in 2009.

The new Web site features contemporary design, improved navigation, and well-structured sections offering a wealth of information on every aspect of Availon North America services like operations and maintenance, end of warranty inspections, spare part management, and the profit-enhancing engineering upgrades. Availon’s over 30 years of experience in wind energy, and specifically, in the megawatt class wind turbines, is documented in numerous case studies and the online publication, OnService Journal, that can be easily downloaded by the site’s visitors.

Steve Thompson, Availon North America president, says that “Our energetic and knowledgeable team of engineers and technicians strives to provide the best ever services to the customers, so the main goal of this new website is to allow the visitors to assess our expertise and make educated decisions on the type of services they may need.”

Availon specializes in parts and services for GE, Vestas, and Siemens turbines, and is expanding to other turbine types. In addition to being a primary supplier for SSB and Duradrive parts, Availon is also an exclusive vendor for Bachmann, Leonard+Bauer, and Convertec parts. Availon, Inc., is a part of the Availon GmbH family, with more than 170 employees worldwide and business units in the United States, Germany, Spain, and Italy. Availon is the first independent wind turbine service provider to be both ISO 9001 certified and fully certified by Germanischer Lloyd in staff training, troubleshooting, and repair processes.
